Tutorial by Finnabair!
This time I worked with acrylic – I used some of my alcohol inks…I
think I’m getting addicted, so probably I’ll have to buy some more ( I’ve
seen the pens – amazing!!!) I’d love to try them!!! And the new colors of
Errmm…what I was talking about?
Ah yes! The tag – A piece of acrylic tag, giant one – 13x19 cm –
bought by accident I suppose is now a background to my old family photo – you
can see there my dad, uncle and aunt with their uncle and aunt – lovely one:)

Acrylic heritage project:
It looks nice and it’s not hard to do – a bit of planing and some alcohol inks and it is ready :)
We start with inking the acrylic surface – the best way is to use an
alcohol ink applicator with felt: we mix the chosen colors on it adding some
“Blending solution” and them we ink the acrylic, adding some “Blending
solution” if necesary. When it dries – we can stamp the tag with a
permanent ink to make it more interesting. Here I took black Staz On ink and a
Tim’s clock stamp. When the ink is dry we add the papers (on the both sides
of the acrylic – it makes it look more 3- dimensional) we put a photo and some
laces or a piece of paper punched with a nice border punch – we ink all the
edges to make it look older. The next step is adding flowers, rub ons and other
embellies - like Melissa’s keyhole inked a bit with an alcohol ink. The
middles of my flowers are flower punches – I took some thin aluminum (the
one from old can will be perfect), painted it with alcohol inks and punched the elements with a flower punch. To finish I filled the flowers with beads , stuck
with some crafting glue.
That’s it! It wasn’t so bad, was it? Hope you’ll try a similar project too!
